Independent developer Rogue Rocket Games – whose co-founders Nick Bruty and Richard Sun previously worked on Star Wars: Republic Commando, Earthworm Jim, MDK, and Escape From Monkey Island – is thrilled to announce their highly acclaimed Wild West themed action-puzzler Gunpowder is now available on Steam for Windows PC, Mac OS X and Linux.
Gunpowder is a one-of-a-kind physics-based puzzle game set in a wacky rendition of the Wild West, in which players go head-to-head against the greedy wolf, Boss Grimshaw.
Players take on the role of Incendio, a friendly fox inspired by the noble deeds of Robin Hood, to reclaim stolen riches for the people, using a series of carefully choreographed explosions ignited by gunpowder lines. Barrels and numerous environmental objects; flaming wagons, Gatling guns, chandeliers, cannons, mine carts and more… aid or hamper the effort! Gunpowder can be played many times over, as players seek to find the fastest and best way to solve each puzzle.
With thousands of votes from fans and supporters, Valve approved Gunpowder for sale on Steam within just a week on Greenlight, blasting it into the top 50 Greenlit games category. Complete with Steamworks integration, Gunpowder’s exceptionally charming art style and wildly addictive gameplay translates perfectly from the iPad touchscreen to mouse and keyboard. The Steam version features support for Steam Achievements, Leaderboards, Cloud Saves and Trading Cards.
Gunpowder is available for purchase on Steam for $9.99, with a special first-week 15% discount price offered (lowered to $8.49) until July 15, 2015.
